Factual error: Towards the end of the movie when Andy is escaping, he breaks open a sewage pipe and is covered with its contents. It is physically impossible for the sewage to shoot out of the break like it did. In order for that to happen there has to be pressure. But there is none there, because the end he crawls through is empty and the end is in the open air. (01:52:20)
Factual error: When Mufasa is showing Simba the kingdom from Pride Rock they are facing the sun, yet Pride Rock's shadow is visible below them. Also in the same position, you see that they have shadows behind them. Then a few seconds later when Simba sees the shadow area the shadows are in front of them while you can see part of the sun to their left side. They would be facing south when the sun is east. How are their shadows in front of them?
Factual error: When Pauline makes her first entry into her 1953 diary, the date at the top of the page is January 1, Thursday. Later in the film when she begins her diary for 1954, the date on the page is January 1, Thursday. The same date in two consecutive years cannot be the same day of the week, they are a day apart (2 in a leap year). In actual fact, 1 January 1954 was a Friday. (00:24:20 - 01:03:45)
Factual error: When Mark and Reggie are fighting over whether or not to go to New Orleans, Mark starts walking toward the Memphis-Arkansas Bridge. There would be no need to cross that bridge as New Orleans is due south on Interstate 55. The Memphis-Arkansas Bridge is Interstate 40 and goes to Little Rock, AR or north to St. Louis.luchador
Factual error: When Vincent shoots Marvin the bullet goes through Marvin's head and exits out the back of his skull with explosive force - enough to splatter "pieces of brain" all over the back of the car. If it exited with so much force the rear window of the car should have shattered from the bullet, but it doesn't even get chipped.
Factual error: The graduation scene would have you believe that they are at Harvard. They are actually at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on the main quad in front of Follinger Hall.
Factual error: During the battle scene the voiceover says that it is February 1915. The battle being portrayed is obviously the Second Battle of Ypres because it involves Canadian troops and it's the first time that gas was used in the war. The actual battle didn't take place until the end of April 1915.
Factual error: While Gary Busey is breaking out of prison, he crawls over a small wall (it is no more than four feet high). However, he takes great pain to swing his legs and body over to the top of the wall, and then is momentarily stuck on top, before finally getting over. For a member of a special ops team, he is clearly out of shape.
Factual error: The entire court proceeding is inaccurate. Under New York state law, all property received during marriage is joint and several. Therefore Charlie has the right to give half (HIS half it turns out) to Yvonne. More strongly, the press is always called out for lottery winners to prevent these situations. The wife screwed herself when she agreed to have Yvonne at the check presentation which effectively shows her agreeing, albeit not happily, to the arrangement. Finally, to be even more picky, under New York state law, the person BUYING the ticket is the only owner and the other person must prove that the ticket was bought in trust for them (if it comes to litigation of-course). In most cases, people like the bowling team readily split the proceeds without a problem.
Factual error: Justine is accused of murdering Victor's young brother and is taken by police. A lynch mob takes her to the top of a fortress wall, drapes a noose around her neck and tosses her over the side. She falls for what looks like at least 8 metres. When the rope comes taut, she is killed but her head isn't ripped off by the force of the fall. Falling for that distance should have torn her head from her body.
